If anyone could tell me in a few simple sentences I'd appreciate it?

They're condensed water vapor with a dose of crazy.



They used to be called contrails (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Contrail) before the crazies looked up and noticed them.

They claim that at some point, there were suddenly more of them and that they started to behave differently than a contrail. They are either for mind control, weather control, or a vast right wing plot to heat up the globe.

I've always thought it would be ironic if they actually do behave differently than they used to because of some random environmentally friendly fuel additive the government mandated be used.

So why are people so nutty about them? What the hell could be in condensed water vapor that would affect the weather?

They don't think they are condensed water vapor.

They think they are "chemicals" being used by "us" to alter them or their world.

Kinda like high altitude crop dusting.

Alter how? Like spreading carcinogens or viruses?

Elspeth, the DUmmies just know they're there and they're bad and
that eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil conservatives are behind them.

I mean really, do those morons need anything else????:confused::D

Actually, I wondered how the myth got started and why. I remember in the 90s how the militias were convinced that the black helicopters were coming to attack US citizens and I wondered the same thing: how do these ideas catch on. (Not "why"--there are always paranoid people, but how these people pull others in.)

Blame it on superior air quality. Chemtrails are one of my very favorite subjects because crackpots all over Colorado call me to share the fear.

Way back in the day, most major metro areas had such crappy visibility that no one ever even saw contrails (which is what these really are). When they did see them, it was infrequent. Thanks to the Clean Air Act, visibility has improved sight out of mind in a lot of areas and so contrails are seen often.

The pot-addled Coast-to-Coast crowd immediately started "wondering" about all these new, very frequent contrails. Contrails became "chemtrails" and middle-aged hippies throughout America suddenly had a new fear: government chemical experimentation.

I don't doubt that the government is illegally experimenting on people in small ways (they always have) but they aren't doing it in conjunction with Southwest airlines. As others have pointed out, contrails are just condensation or very rarely, a fuel dump. Get as excited as you want about planes falling out of the sky but don't give the water vapor a second thought. ;)

They were spraying ChemTrails in our development last night Pat!!!

They had it disguised as a mosquito control truck!!! :eek::D

The bigger question for the DUmmies should be, WHO is behind the chemtrails?

Thank you for explaining it to me!

It's always good to know where this stuff comes from.

Anytime. There's an actual psychological explanation for these phenomena: contamination fears. They crop up any time people notice that an "unusual" factor has been introduced into their environment. It could be anything: pasteurized milk (back in the old days), fluoride water treatments (Americans have the best dental health of any large nation), air duct cleaning services (how did we survive before MonsterVac?), etc.

The loopier you are personally, the more credence you will put in some of these things.

Very pretty. But what is it? It’s clearly not a regular exhaust contrail, as the trail seems to start actually ON the wing, and it has a weird rainbow effect you don’t find in exhaust contrails.

It’s actually an aerodynamic contrail. It’s formed by the reduction of pressure in the air as it moves over the wing. When the pressure of a gas falls, then its temperature also falls (the same principle as is used by your refrigerator). The reduced temperature cause small drops of water to condense, which then may freeze. The (frozen) drops get larger as more water condenses on them. The different sized drops (or ice crystals) have different optical properties, which affect different wavelengths of light, which accounts for the “rainbow” effect.

Did you know that the VRWC was active in WW2? Here's some photos to prove it....

The second thing is get the dogs back in the house from the yard when those mosquito trucks go by. :D

Actually only a very small percentage of DUers think that. There are plenty nutballs there but that particular paranoia isn't a major one...
